A new study conducted by a team of researchers from a Palo Alt-based start-up named Airly has collected data of the most air-polluted European countries during the summer months and regretfully, Malta has made an appearance…
The research gathered sensor data on both particular matter (PM) and Nitrogen Dioxide (NO2) air pollution in European Holiday cities, with the Canaries in Spain topping the list with a whopping 30.6 on the CAQI-PM scale, and Malta coming in second with a close-cut score of 30.2.
Basically – the higher the number, the worse the air quality. Interestingly, it was found that the least polluted coastal region in Europe is Eastern Scotland, with an impressive score of 7.22!
Airly claimed to use sensors to provide an accurate listing for governments, media, and businesses to use in an effort to tackle the issue of air pollution ‘head on’.
